Move sets a new standard in the US commercial blending industry.
OREM, UTAH, USA – September 4, 2012 – Professionals have long relied on the quality, innovation and performance of Blendtec’s commercial blending equipment. Now the company has introduced another distinctive benefit of owning their machines: a true 3-year motor base warranty that includes parts and labor (with no cycle count restrictions) and an expanded 2-year jar warranty.
These industry-leading warranties apply to the new Blendtec StealthTM, as well as all Q-SeriesTM (including ABC models) and Chef® blenders sold in the US. These models are now backed by a full 3-year motor base warranty that covers all genuine parts and factory labor, regardless of blend cycle count. The improved warranties are retroactive to products purchased on or after January 1, 2012.
“We sell the best blenders in the industry, and now they have the best warranties,” says Tom Dickson, Blendtec founder. “We’ve achieved a level of product quality and reliability that supports a warranty that simply can’t be found anywhere else.”
Blendtec services all of its US equipment right at the factory in Orem, Utah, which delivers exceptional quality and a much faster response time for customers.
New Warranty Details
The following warranties (against manufacturing or material defects) apply to Blendtec Stealth, Q-Series and Chef blenders sold in the US:
- Motor Base: 3 years parts and labor, no cycle count restrictions
- Sound Enclosures: 3 years
- Jars: 2 years, all commercial jars
- Blades: Life of the jar
- Drive Socket: Life of the machine
The new Blendtec warranties are the strongest, most comprehensive commercial blender warranties available – and further demonstrate the company’s commitment to the quality and workmanship of its products.
By contrast, other commercial blender warranties come with limitations and fine print, and often include cycle restrictions or require service through a third party rather than from the factory. Even some so-called “3 year warranties” from other manufacturers only provide parts and labor coverage for the first year, leaving the burden of the labor cost for the final two years on the customer.
Service PlusTM for Long-Term Security
Along with the improved warranties, Blendtec continues to offer its revolutionary Service PlusTM program that provides long-term security to users of the Stealth, Q-Series, SpaceSaver and Chef blenders in the US.
Provided at no additional cost, the Service Plus program is a lifetime replacement plan that allows customers to purchase a replacement motor base at steeply-discounted rates in the event of an out-of-warranty motor failure. This drastically lowers the lifetime ownership costs of Blendtec blenders, and virtually eliminates downtime for foodservice customers.
Blendtec’s new warranties are now in effect and are retroactive for all covered blender and jar models purchased on or after January 1, 2012. As with all warranties, the Blendtec warranties cover manufacturing or material defects, and do not cover equipment failures due to abuse, neglect, modification or improper maintenance.
